Few times in the history of craft beer it has happened that a highly praised beer rises beyond mortal stardom into a higher godly league. Usually the recipe to make such heavenly drops is thick fudge-like body, pitch black color, amazingly overwhelming aromas of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and muscovado sugar, obviously only made in limited amounts and most crucial of all – it must taste rare!

Bov's rating

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 9/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 19/20
Bov (13553) - Bienne, - JAN 11, 2013
from Erzbierschof - black beer with a poor head retention; very roasted almost smokey aroma with notes of ashes; coffee and black chocolate, pretty nutty; full-bodied, some moderate sweetness followed by a robust bitterness; pretty velvety palate; very long hoppy and coffeish aftertaste, bitter and slightly salty with notes of pepper and walnuts - great stuff !

Can. Black pour with a creamy tan head. Thick rich dark chocolate, dark roasted malt, and a touch of dark fruit. Top notch.

This one is one of my favorites! One that got me to love Imperial Stouts. I love how rich and thick it is. This really gets me going. It's got quite a kick though.

Puszka. Barwa nieprzejrzyście czarna, znikoma, kremowa piana. Aromat kawy, czekolady deserowej, pralin, delikatna nuta likierowa. W smaku bardzo podobne wrażenia, czekolada, praliny, piwo jest bardzo gęste, wręcz oleiste. Goryczka średnia, niskie nasycenie, alkohol delikatnie wyczuwalny, ale w nienachalny sposób, nie przeszkadza.

vinivini (3284) - Gomel, BELARUS - MAR 3, 2018
Can. Pitch black. Tan head. Nose: complex. Roasted barley, chocolate, dried fruit, minor smoke & peat, vinous. Powerful. Full body. Taste: a fist of roast, chocolate, higher spirits, dried fruit. Outstanding balance. Cloud nine.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2018 Magnifique, les bulles du gaz carbonique pétillent en bouche et relatent tous les arômes qui persistent longuement. Je suis surpris en bien...

Strong coffee, booze, and chocolate. The head is dark brown and beautiful. From the top it looks like a chocolate milkshake. Pitch black beer, no light penetrates through the glass. Very oily texture. You can even see the oiliness as the bubbles dissipate. Tastes of strong coffee, roasted malts, booze, chocolate, leather, cloves, and a little heat at the finish. If you like tons of flavor out of your beers this is for you!

Bif (2438) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - FEB 27, 2018
Can. Pours a black color with a tan head. Aroma of dark fruit, coffee, roasted malt and bit of dark chocolate. Taste of Coffee, roasted malt, dark fruit, dark chocolate and a bit boozy. Malt bitterness that lingers into a slightly boozy finish. Fairly full body, smooth and flavorful with a distinct boozy touch. Quite nice.

oberschlesier (270) - Kattowitz, UPPER SILESIA, - FEB 22, 2018
Aroma: chocolate, pralines, chocolate bar, oxidation notes and chocolate covered cherries (during warming), there's also some alc. notes - rum style (muscovado sugar). Taste: sweet, some alc. finish. Beer has rather nice, dark brown head with some lacing, though carbonation is low to average. Black, oily, silky. Nice RIS, though it has alc. notes - but that doesn't bother very much. It is not super-intensive, but has nice balance.

Solidna pozycja. Ciemny (z refleksami) kremowy imperial staut. Piwo ciężkie, oleiste, słodkawe. Piana brązowa, jest jej sporo i nie osiada. W posmaku trochę likieru, trochę ziemisty, trochę czekolady, trochę goryczki. Alkohol dość wyraźny jednak nie przeszkadza to w kontemplacji całości. Rozgrzewa przełyk i jest doskonałe zimową porą.
